" In college, I coordinated a reading program with local elementary school students that took place once a week. I also tutored at my college's writing center, working with fellow college students to improve and enhance writing assignments in all disciplines and to strengthen basic grammar and organizational skills. I am excited to be a Varsity Tutor, instilling a passion for learning in my students through experiential, hands-on education that promotes critical thinking skills. I firmly believe that the provision of equal educational opportunities can help foster social equality." ...

" After graduating and settling down in New York City, I began working in finance and I am looking to do something more meaningful, interesting, and enjoyable. Tutoring and helping others is something I am extremely passionate about. I have been doing freelance tutoring since December 2011 before working for Varsity Tutors. Learning math is different than any other subject. It is more about understanding the process and asking "why" rather than memorization."

"I am passionate about education and believe strongly in academic success as a platform for personal growth and self-esteem. My tutoring experience began in middle school as a reading helper to children for whom English was a second language (ages 5-10). I continued to tutor throughout middle and high school as a ‘homework helper’ for kids with behavioral and developmental challenges, which required that I teach a range of subjects at various levels with personalized approaches for each student (ages 9-13). While in high school, I completed a challenging AP curriculum and tutored my peers in Biology, Psychology, English, Spanish, ...

" I have noticed a direct correlation between achievement and how the children feel about themselves. Children who feel good about themselves achieve and children who achieve feel good about themselves. My program provides success and structure. I have taught reading, writing, math, social studies, science, critical thinking, organizational skills and metacognitive strategies to children with special needs and general education students."

"A desire to learn the material (a desire to survive the course or test will do) 2. A teacher who is creative enough to understand how the student thinks, and can adapt lessons into the student's "own language" accordingly IF YOU BRING THE FORMER, I’LL BRING THE LATTER. My previous tutoring experience has taught me one thing above all else: everybody learns differently, and effective teachers are the ones who can adapt. This is what I do for all my students. A little more about me: I have recently relocated to the Upper West Side after completing my M.S." ...

"While I enjoy tutoring all kinds of essay skills, english literature is my favorite. I love poetry, plays, and fiction classics -- everything from Shakespeare to Shelly! My dad is a lawyer, and has taught me the value of strong argumentation skills. I have published everything from short stories to journalistic articles, in my college paper or at The New York Times. Most students come to me for my encouraging spirit and fun attitude because I always want to make learning a positive experience."

"A typical tutoring situation starts with my reviewing a student's past work, observing his/her thought processes as he/she works on an assignment. As I continue to assess the strengths and identify the areas of improvement I provide careful guidance so that he/she demonstrates the full competence in him/her independently. I've also been a Mandarin teacher and professional translator for a variety of clients, including classical musicians, diplomats, education researchers for the past three decades. To this end I've accumulated several publications over the years. In addition to the aforementioned work I was a computer ...
